145 years ago today - Feb 4, 1878

First ad in the Deseret News for "JACKSON'S BEST SWEET NAVY Chewing Tobacco," which appears directly under a large advertisement for "St. Louis Excelsior Lager Beer! Which we offer at LOWER RATES than any other first class beer in the market." Ads for chewing tobacco appear in the Deseret News (sometimes on the front page) through 2 Feb. 1880.
